Transformers War for Cybertron

[starttext] An encrypted countdown on the official site showed that more information surrounding the game will be available at 5:00PMEST/6:00PMCST, Tuesday, December 15, 2009. This encrypted countdown has now expired, and has been replaced with a "transmission search". The goal of the user is to find all the transmission coordinates, demarcated by Cybertronian symbols on a dial in the lower-right hand corner. Hasbro and Activision made a press release about the game on December 16, 2009.[12] The press release revealed the game will function as an origin story for the Transformers and will feature separate campaigns for the Autobots and Decepticons. The game will also feature on-line co-op and head-to-head multiplayer. Since the cinematic trailer's release, IGN (along with many other critics) has started calling War for Cybertron the "Batman: Arkham Asylum" of 2010. [13]

In reaction to the many fans who were "irked by the 'Michael Bay-ified insect-like versions'" (dubbed "Bayformers" by those fans) of the Autobots and Decepticons from the 2007 and 2009 Transformers films, the design team has tried to put a "modern polish" on a look that is intended to evoke the feel of the cartoon that launched the series into mainstream public awareness.
